Is there a minimum threshold to be compliant with the EU Taxonomy?
Honorata Fijalka

No, there is no minimum threshold for reporting. The Taxonomy does not specify which reporting framework is used, and thus allows flexibility to adapt to the national context, providing that the compliance with criteria and thresholds can be assessed for the holding level as appropriate for the investment.
